Dreaming of the California Coast? Check Out this Online Travel Guide

Guide includes accessibility features for more than 160 locations

Planning your summer vacation just got a bit easier thanks to an upgraded online travel guide. “A Wheelchair Rider’s Guide to the California Coast” now includes the entire coastline of California.

The guide, which launched in 2010, outlines accessibility features for more than 160 parks, trails, beaches and piers. Want to know the average cross-slopes and grades of trails? Curious about accessible restrooms and beach chair rentals? This is the guide for you. Recently, the guide has added information for the South and North coasts and San Francisco Bay area as well.


“Before people with limited mobility venture out to explore the outdoors, they want to know more about a park or trail than the term ‘wheelchair accessible’ provides,” said Bonnie Lewkowicz, director of Access Northern California and creator of the site.

Lewkowicz has ensured the site provides that type of information all in a searchable format.
